Second liquefied natural gas terminal to start operation soon

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

Bangladesh’s second liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal is expected to start operation soon as the vessel ‘Summit LNG’ with Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) of Summit has arrived at Bangladesh’s designated coordinates in the Bay of Bengal, said a press release.

“After adjustment of FSRU with the pipe line the gas supply will start within few days,”

said a Pertrobangla official yesterday.

The vessel is now moored 6 kilometers off the island of Moheshkhali in Cox’s Bazar. Summit has time chartered to purchase this vessel from USA’s Excerelate Energy for 15 years and it has now carried LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) from Qatar.

The FSRU will send out Regasified Liquified Natural Gas (RLNG) via subsea pipeline connected to the national grid.

Summit LNG is able to regasify 500 million cubic feet of LNG daily (mmcfd).

On the occasion the Founder Chairman of Summit Group Muhammed Aziz Khan said, “Summit is working towards achieving power and energy sufficiency in Bangladesh under the bold leadership of the government.”
